What Is It?
CLA is a naturally occurring trans isomer of linoleic acid. It is unique in structure because of the location of the double bonds in the linoleic acid molecule. Pure Encapsulations concentrated CLA provides an average of 77% total CLA, and contains the main isomers c9,t11 and t10,c12.*
Uses For CLA
Promotes Lean Body Composition: CLA may benefit body composition and support weight control. Recent research shows that the specific isomers c9,t11 and t10,c12 play key roles in many of CLA’s physiological properties. In a preliminary human study involving 60 overweight subjects, conjugated linoleic acid reduced body fat mass. Several animal studies explore possible mechanisms of CLA, including the ability to moderate fat deposition, increase lipolysis in adipocytes, reduce energy intake, increase energy expenditure and support metabolic rate.*
